We suggested that the New All Singing All Dancing Net Model would be announced at the end of October. Those of you who Follow the Astronomer Royal will have noticed that today is the last day of October and we have not yet made our Fabulous, Earth Shattering, Truly WONDERFUL Announcement yet.

Sadly there is to be another small delay. Continuing with the principle of not wanting to emulate another site and launch and then go tits up, we are not launching until everything is actually ready.

This is very disappointing for us as well as the members but be assured work continues apace and we will keep you informed. It is just that when some little-shit-troll-gremlin comes out from under the desk unexpectedly we have to take time off to kick him in the teeth.

Remember, Trolls' brains are silica based and only function properly at temperatures lower than minus 72 degrees Kevin.

This is why James stopped announcing updates and the like a few years back and it was a wise move I suspect. I did warn on a certain other site that the update needed to be complete or it would unravel. Sadly it looks like I was right.

There will be precisely one shot at getting a site like this off its knees and in with a chance of recovering its former glory. Blow it and the moment is lost.

Having said that I have to say I bloody love what James is doing. It will be a very slick site once up and well worth the wait. Which I personally suspect will not be until the new year

I'm looking forward to seeing this - having started my journey of shooting models through this site I retain a certain fondness for it.

Yes, not even the joinup routine has been fixed. It's obvious from the number of models who attempt to join two or three times under slightly varying names and still aren't able to post any photos that it's been broken for years.

The update is an entirely new site so don't expect anything to get fixed here

I think it would definitely help in the future if profiles are not published until pictures are uploaded. There are so many profiles (both models and photographers) with no pictures that it's difficult to take them seriously.

I'm not expecting anything to be fixed here. But to let a site run for years and years with a joinup routine which locks up and prevents anyone new from actually joining, doesn't bode well for any future version. By the time that happens the stable will be empty. Or the horse will have bolted. Or something about horses.
